I found one thing that fell. It was the operating income. Here's a look at what happened within it.

Operating Income (Loss) by Segment:
  
                     2006                 2005                   2007   
  
Publishing          $(3,984)           $160,826               $93,223
  
Distribution         21,941             23,745                 16,594
  
Total operating 
income              $17,957            184,571                $109,817


Obviously you can tell what happened. While distribution stayed about the same, publishing fell a total of 
164,810.That made the total operating income drop 166,614. That alone, while everything else was about 
normal brought thetotal net income down a lot. I am not very sure how publishing would really effect the
stock or if I should really pay attention to it. If somebody would would clear up that I would appreciate it.

Best,
